  1. Ha. That's a pretty poor photoshop...
  2. Thanks Pedrothelion! I was looking for some of these a while back but without luck. Have also found them on the UK Amazon site here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/MiniDisc-MiniDisk-Cassette-Wallet-Hochklar/dp/B00X2KBLU8/
  3. Where did you get the cases from Pedrothelion?
  4. Slight caveat to the above: the RM-49M and RM-47M don't have the Group On/Off or Skip buttons that the RM-D10E has but I don't think this would be an issue in your case as I do not believe that the MDS-JE480 has the Group function.
  5. Not an exact answer to your question but the remote control that came with my MDS-JB940 (RM-D49M) works with my MDS-JB980, which came with the RM-D10E remote. I'd assume that your RM-D47M would probably work with an MDS-JE480 but hopefully someone here could confirm.
  6. When I put a disc in my MDS-JB940 (assume my other decks are the same) in goes in and then down. When you press eject the disc moves upwards and is then ejected outwards. I think that's what Amater was referring to.
  7. I think I might need to do this to my MDS-JB940 too. Ejecting discs is a bit erratic at times. It's mostly okay but every now and again it makes a sort of squealing noise and doesn't eject the disc. Usually turning if off and then trying again results in it working.
  8. Nice piece of improvisation there! I think I am probably overthinking this tbh. I put AA/AAA batteries with a variety of different mAh ratings in my normal battery charger without any issues. I did find a post elsewhere on the internet where someone said that the BC-9HP did not "fully support" 1450mAh batteries and that you needed a BC-9HP2 charger to get maximum capacity out of them. No idea if that's actually the case.
  9. I've got a Sony BC-9HP battery charger that, IIRC, I got with my MZ-E30 MiniDisc player. The charger says on it "charge only NH-9WM and NC-6WM". I lost my original NH-9WM battery when my MZ-E30 got stolen many years ago but it looks as though it was a 1200mAh battery. Is there any reason I shouldn't use this charger to charge Vapex gumstick batteries that are 1450mAh? The specs on the back of the BC-9HP say: Input: AC220-230V 7W 50Hz Output: DC1.2V 1.9A Apologies if it's a daft question but I'm no electronics expert...
  10. Ah, sorry. I got the wrong end of the stick completely.
  11. Does your CD player have an optical or coax digital output?
  12. Have you tried making a recording from a digital source? If so, was that more successful? Are you able to playback any MiniDiscs recorded on other machines?
  13. I'd stumbled across that What Hi-Fi forum as well. Wasn't really sure if it was much more than just speculation though. Although, as you point out, it does sound fairly plausible. Does your MDS-JB940 have the "UK Sound Tuned" badge on it Bluecrab? If so, are there any other indications on it anywhere that show it is a UK model? Mine has the model number printed on the back as just MDS-JB940 (where the voltage details/serial number are). It also has another code lower down underneath where the power cord is connected that reads: 4-228-507-41 CED CEK.
  14. I've wondered about that too. My MDS-JB980s both carry the "UK Sound Tuned" badge but my MDS-JB940, which as far as I am aware is a UK model, doesn't. Not sure if the previous owner may have removed it (are they just stickers?) or whether it never had one in the first place. My SCD-XB790 also carries the badge but none of my Sony QS cassette decks do.
  15. Great work Kris. Always good to see a machine saved, especially one as nice as that.
